“I’m a human being, a citizen of a world in which we are all dependent on each other, a world in which we need a greater sense of concern for the welfare of others. Wherever I go I like to meet members of the public so I can share these ideas with them.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
“People face difficulties in many parts of the world, but since all seven billion of us live on this one planet we should be united and stand in solidarity with each other. When this blue planet is viewed from space, there are no national boundaries to be seen.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
“If we want to see a more peaceful world, we have to learn to collaborate. Young people shouldn’t follow previous patterns of behaviour. New conditions, like our interdependent, globalised world, require new ideas. Dividing people into ‘us’ and ‘them’ is out of date.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
In my experience, what we need is a calm mind and warm-heartedness provides a basis for that. That’s how we make ourselves happy as individuals in families, local communities and nations. If we can train those who are young today in these qualities we’ll create a happier world.His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
We are all each other’s brothers and sisters.
